want to pay 1 dollar for it. dilemma has three governors in prison for $15 billion deficit. if they want to pay, that's the problem. misery needs to make the tough decisions. should they be put in the mix of whether we've reduced 70 or high-speed rail? is probably in the mix, but i don't think is before us now. i want to see what the load factors to be. that's my world. i want to see supply and demand. if the demand there? will supply. if not, we're not in a position to build it and they will come. we are just not there. >> jim higgins. >> okay, well i am not a transportation expert and i don't think these guys are either. actually i graduated from school as a civil engineer, but they work five years as a civil engineer, but lately i've computers. but why should a bureaucrat decide, you know, what mode of transportation is best, whether we have rail or highway is? it got us in trouble in the beginning. we built all these highways. we overdo it on the highways. now we have pollution and gas consumption because some bureaucrat decided that we needed highways. while now were t
to get the deficit down to 4.5% deficit. quite frankly, that is pie in the skil according to pretty much all the analysts and the economists. and it's just a question of how much they'll miss by. because this economy is enacting extreme austerity, and this debate is relevant whether it's obama or romney. is austerity actually denting growth, is it creating more problems than it solves. let me give you one example. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia ar
came in office. i inner hadited the biggest deficit in our history. the last four years it went up and 90 percent is consequence of two wars that were not paid for and tax cut that is were not paid for . prescription drug plan not paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10 percent of the increase in the deficit. >> brian: front page of the new york times. stuart rather thaney it is over one trillion. every budget when they do the math he is over budget by a trillion dollars. >> gretchen: he said 10 percent. wars and the horrible recession he was begin that only accounts for 10 percent. >> yes. >> gretchen: what about the other 90 percent? >> steve: george bushes fault? >> gretchen: i am anding a question. >> you are exposing the attitude of the establishment media to all of president obama and his economic record. break it down. the president said i am only 10 percent responsible for a massive accumulation of debt. he is a big spender, a very big spender and that's the principle reason why we have a massive deficit of trillion a year. he has
dollar for it. illinois has three governors in prison and a 15 billion-dollar deficit if they want to pay for it that is their problem. missouri has to be responsible and make the tough decisions to read should be put in the mix of what we do the high-speed rail? it's probably in the mix but i don't think that is before us right now. i want to see with a factor would be. that's my world. i want to see supply and demand. if it's not there we are not in the position to build it and they will come. we are just not there. >> moderator: jim higgins? higgins: okay. i am not a transportation expert, and i don't think that these guys are either. i graduate from school as a civil engineer and i worked five years as a civil engineer but i haven't lately working on computers. why should a bureaucrat decide, which, what mode of transportation is the best? what we have rail or highways it got a central in the beginning. we build all of these highways. we overdid it on the highway. now we have our pollution and gas consumption because some bureaucrat decided that we needed highways. now we are trying t
, and their greatest threat to america is not military, it is the deficit. why do we have a deficit? we have a deficit because of the bushmen in their tax cuts, -- bush millionaires' tax cuts, because they are not paying their fair share of taxes. mitt romney is paying 14% of his income. i do not care how much mr. plummer made, but it is how much he paid. if mitt romney paid 14%, mr. plummer want to go to congress and he wants to write tax policy. don't you think it is fair that he discloses what his tax returns are? [applause] center brady, his running mate, in his failed bid to become lieutenant governor, released his tax returns. he did not pay any federal income tax for two years. what is it that mr. plummer has not paid? >> mr. palmer? >> i will answer the question. if you look and what is happening right now in the united states, if you look at what is happening, you have politicians of both polos -- part is not being honest with the voters. the bush tax cuts -- i will call of the obama tax cuts because they supported the extension. we have a tax code that is more than 72,000 pages, and grows ev
close the deficit next year. if you look at example. this was tried in oregon in 2010. it didn't bring the revenue they thought. tried the same experiment in illinois. didn't bring in the revenue they thought. do you think down the line though, somebody will have a scorecard and say this is what you thought it would bring in but it didn't happen? >> well they will have to, melissa. so initially, you're absolutely right. initially when you raise taxes, remember we're halfway through a tax year. so you can't, you can't move today and not claim you earned that money in france. so people will have to pay higher taxes this year. so they might have a little bit better of a budget over the next 12, maybe, 18 months. but after this, things start to fall apart. but more importantly, businesses are going to see growth slow down and they're going to have to lay off workers. this is where the polls and the politics starts to work against the president. melissa: i worry this is where it comes home to the u.s. because immediately today all across the news when people were reporting this story i say
of spending cuts or deshl resources to meet its 2013 deficit target. and fitch is lowering its 2012 growth forecasts both for china and india. citing deteriorating outlook of the global economy. so not a great way to start the morning. >> no, not great, but i like seeing what we did -- i saw ge and i was going to tell whoever thinks that we need to kiss up to them still -- >> minority partner. >> they are. but comcast would have been a better -- or we could have done both. and did i see something that it had first quarter, second quarter, third quarter? what do i need in the fourth quarter to get to the 30%? do we hahave that anymore? is that gone? no, they don't have it. >> i saw the dow, s&p and nasdaq. >> what did it add up to? adds up to like 15 or so. >> i just saw for this quarter. >> oh, it didn't show first quarter, second quarter -- >> no. >> there are corporate headlines. people started getting plaq blackberries? >> they beat expectations. >> they lost money, they beat expectations. >> but they added subscribers. >> subscribers in developed countries. the point is a developing --
of initiatives to educate voters on issues in the election. the debt and deficit exceed $16 trillion. his article will appear tomorrow in usa today. we will show you an excerpt in just a moment. first some context to ross perot. when he ran as a third-party, he talked about the growing debt. \ [video clip] >> the world of a unlamented opportunity. what what they say to us if they knew by the year 2000 we will have left them with a national debt of $8 trillion? what would they say if they knew we make them the first generation of americans with a standard of living below the generation below them? we cannot do this to our children. in this election we have the opportunity to choose a candidate not a career politician, but a proven business leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need t
the republican party has gotten lost. we cannot afford any tax cuts. we have to deal with our deficit. that will mean spending cuts for everybody. dagen: is it a mistake to run on this at all? how can you focus been on, because the issue is growth and jobs. how do you run and talk about that without linking tax policy to it somehow? the opposite would be saying we will get rid of these deductions. some people taxes will go up. that will not win you to white house, will it? >> both parties have been -- we cannot afford to give anybody anything anymore. we are broke. we are running a trillion dollars deficit. once we start paying a real normal interest rate on that 20 trillion, it will send the budget even deeper. dagen: all of what you are saying makes perfect sense. i have argued for years that the american people will not vote to pick that until they feel it is home. runaway inflation like the 1970s and skyhigh interest rates like people saw 30 some odd years ago. that is not the case today. if it was laid out just like that, do you think they would vote based on that? >> i think the

even to grips witness. >> reporter: in 2009 president obama pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney
voters trust romney more than the president to do a better job of handling the budget deficit. and mitt romney is telling ohio voters he feels their pain, and and he knows how to fix it. in a high school gym outside columbus this morning.. golf legend jack nicklaus introduced romney by saying the two men share family values. romney told the crowd of two thousand people, they can trust him to know his strengths.. righting the economy as well as tackling the national debt. romney is scheduled to take part in a manufacturing roundtable in bedford heights, ohio this hour. he'll attend a rally later this afternoon in toledo. sad news today for a generation who grew up listening to crooner andy williams. williams died at his home in branson missouri. he had bladder cancer. with 17 gold and three platinum records, andy williams was among the most popular singers of his time. his variety show was a tv favorite from 1962-1971 in the 70's and 80's he hosted his annual christmas tv specials... he also hosted numerous award shows. just ahead: just ahead of the holiday shopping season, kohls is an

with the numbers saying how, you know, it's a moral obligation to reduce the deficit, just ask 'em, well, explain us how the numbers work. because they don't. they don't have a deficit reduction plan. they have a deficit expansion plan. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: now, this morning governor romney jumped on those new gdp figures, said it reinforces his charge that this country cannot afford another four years of president obama and that his five-point plan for is the right prescription for this country. this is what he said. >> those five things i describe will get america's economy going again, will help people find jobs that need those jobs, will get take-home pay to come up again. this is not a mystery. we know how to do it, america has faced challenges before. when we have strong leaders, when we have people who know how to lead and where to get it -- we can get it done. and i am and we will. >> reporter: governor romney looking more toward the future and what this country would be like under a romney administration, making this as much about a choice as it has been so far about a refe

in the senate, his fiscal policies turned masses surpluses into massive deficits. the federal deficit went up $16,000 every second george allen was the united states senator. voted to raise the debt ceiling four times, voted to raise his own salary four times. now he's talking like a conservative, but his record shows he can't have another crack at it because his actions don't match his word. again, i think the right strategy is an aggregated examination of deductions rather than fighting issue-to-issue. you can have the amount or percentage vary by income or how the tax code is already. that's the most likely path to lead to success. >> we're out of time on that answer. >> can i have time to rebut? >> not according to your rules. i like more than less, but going on. >> governor allen, virginia voters are divided on whether they want the affordable care act to stay or go because it's not completely ruled out and because it's so complex. do you want to completely get rid of the law as a stands and start over on health care reform from strach or favor -- scratch or favor another method? >> i'll

. >> representative baldwin? >> thank you. let me talk about what i would cut in order to grapple with our deficit and our debt. i'd end the war, i've worked to end the war in afghanistan which costs us $ billion a week. i would get rid of the sweetheart deal tommy thompson negotiated as head of medicare that makes it illegal for drug companies to bargain with -- medicare to bargain with drug companies for better prices for seniors that one costs us $15 billion per year. i'd get rid of corporate welfare for big corporate farms and big oil. i'd also let the bush tax cuts for the top % expire. i also want to look at the record contrast. i already told you about the policies that tommy thompson supported that added over $3.5 trillion to the debt when president bush was in office. i opposed those irresponsible plans that added to our debt. so now in the future, tommy thompson supports a plan that adds trillions more in tax cuts for the very wealthy and raises taxes on the middle class. that's the wrong scription for tackling our -- prescription for tackling our debt. >> our next question, from robert

not the cause of our budget deficit. host: one more question from twitter. what social changes would you recommend for the security council, i would recommend indefinite veto powers. guest: the difficulty is as secretary hul statel in 1944 when of setting up the united nations, the united states would not stay in the united nations for a second about the veto power in the security council. it is the price of having great powers to agree to a universal body and be an organ for international peace and security. they have to defend their fundamental interest. it is simply the price. i do think that tweaking the membership of the security council to reflect the rise of a number of large powers is something that the security council is finally going to have to get serious about. permanent membership has not changed since 1945. big countries, particularly india but also brazil and others, remain outside. that is not an indefinite glidepath we can live with. host: thank you for your time. guest: thank you, greta. host: we will sit switch topics and discuss the legal challenge to the president's
